‘Who cares … call them racists’: Explaining the dishonest attacks on legal scholar Ilya Shapiro

Libertarian legal scholar Ilya Shapiro made a bad tweet. It didn’t express any bad ideas; it just made an unpopular argument, perhaps poorly worded.
You see, President Joe Biden has made it clear that he has excluded from his Supreme Court search all Hispanic people, all Indian Americans, all Pakistani Americans, all Chinese Americans, all Native Americans, all Italian Americans, all Irish Americans, all Polish Americans, and all men.
That’s a lot of jurists to rule out.

Here’s more proof public school administrators in Virginia are harming children

My children go to public schools, and they’re doing well. Where we live, the schoolteachers and administrators welcome feedback, and there’s an open door of communication. In Virginia, though, school administrators are so adamant that they, more than parents, know what is best for children that they are suing Gov. Glenn Youngkin over his decision to make masks in schools optional.

Netflix gives Munich a revisionist history

“Friends,” a character intones in the new film Munich: The Edge of War. “History is watching us.”
Now streaming on Netflix, the movie is a fictionalized portrayal of the 1938 Munich Agreement when the British and the French, hoping to avert another world war, acquiesced to the Nazi dismemberment of Czechoslovakia.
War, however, was only delayed for less than a year. As it turns out, Munich only whetted Adolf Hitler’s appetite for a wider European conquest.

What Republicans should say they’re for

At his ill-fated press conference last week, President Joe Biden threw out a challenge to his Republican critics. Biden asked, “What are Republicans for? What are they for? Name me one thing they’re for.”
This invitation turned out to be a huge missed opportunity. Asked what his agenda would be if Republicans regained control of Congress, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell replied that it was “a very good question. And I’ll let you know when we take it back.
